've seen this before. in 2000, karl rove said, george w. bush was going to win california. they spent millions and millions of dollars on advertising there. they sent bush out there, precious time, near the end of the campaign. i said, tad devine, carter, those of us involved in that campaign, so we're not spending one dime in california, and gore won the state by 1.3 million votes. the wish can't become father to the reality, which is what's going on here. >> like a team trying to talk their way to a championship instead of playing the game, so to speak. shouldn't romney have florida wrapped up? >> he should. he has a lot of -- there, he has structural advantages because he's got the governor and virtually all the statewide officials. but i think the medicare, and the republicans like to say, oh, we've countered it with this lie about a $716 billion cut under obama care, when in fact there is no such cut. there's no cut in benefits. i think that seniors have figured out two things. one, romney wants to replace medicare with voucher care. they don't like it. but isn't it the latino an

another term, nancy pelosi of california may be planning to step down. began when pelosi moved to december 5th. where do these z new players fit in the balance of power and why does it matter? contributor jimmy williams is here to break it down for us. my man who was with me through the night for the insomniacs. all right. so elizabeth warren, a big emotional win for the democrats getting back that seat that was teddy kennedy's for so long. what does the new leadership role mean? >> understand how the senate works. when a freshman senator comes in, they don't have a leadership role. they may have a symbolish role. taking the seat back -- being against the banks. which is the new financial protection bureau. >> certainly, absolutely. question question becomes what will the role be in the senate. most freshman senators when they come in, they sit back on the back benches. they sit down, they listen, they come up with an expertise area whether it be immigration and taxes or whatever it is. and they learn as much as they can. and they give speeches when needed. and they keep quiet. that's what
and california and some of the other blue states. that's part of why the national polls might not be that great an indicator. >> these national states haven't seen the advertising, haven't seen the campaigning, haven't seen the targeted messaging. that's where the president's team has built the operation that they think will allow them to go from tied nationally to a little bit of an advantage. >> it depends which poll you look at. most of them show mitt romney has a lead among independents. if you're the romney campaign is that your reason for optimism tonight and tomorrow? >> three reasons to be optimistic. one is in a lot of polls, they're doing betting with independents. in a state like ohio, the candidate who wins independents usually wins. david axelrod such as much on the show last week. an incumbent below 50% at 47%, 48%, you have to think you might lose. and third is, ever reporter who's been out in the last week with the candidates has seen there's a lot of enthusiasm on the republican side. i'm not saying there's not enthusiasm for the president. there is. it's not at the level of 20
this closely. when i've spoken to people in texas, i've spoken to people in california, they're all focused on this story. seeing the president in the role of president does have an impact on some undecided voters, i think. i think that there was that leadership role which he managed to fulfill, and he fulfilled it well. >> it's just an awkward situation for the romney campaign. since sandy made landfall earlier this week, we mentioned fema. mitt romney has been facing questions about his plans for funding fema and disaster response. something he suggested turning back to the states during a debate last year. attempting to clarify the position, the romney campaign released a statement reading in part, quote, this. i believe that fema plays a key role in working with states and localities to prepare for and respond to natural disasters. as president, i will ensure fema has the funding it needs to fulfill its mission, while directing maximum resources to first responders who work tirelessly to help those in need because states and localities are in the best position to get aid to the individu
of california. there's a lot of news out there. we have a lot to cover. first, congressman larson, about this barn storming tour that is being suggested that the president might do. will this put pressure on lawmakers? would public pressure make a difference at this point? >> well, i think it's important that the president be out there and i think it would only enhance the opportunity for us coming to solutions. when the american public wants to see is a congress working toward solutions that will put them back to work. and ed, you have emphasized this over and over again on your show. job creation equals deficit reduction. so putting -- this is something that everyone can agree on in the congress. they wouldn't even take up the president's bill. let's take up the job creation bill. let's signal to the american public and the the entire world that this nation is going back to work and we know that lowering that unemployment rate will drop the deficit and produce a better society. and also with regard to taxes. we have a clear path forward here. everybody again agrees that the middle clas

of the fact just the whole women's thing and the way women now tend to be democrats. you see it in california. we have two senators who are women in washington state and new york, of course, you have a woman senator now and in the northeast. in fact, i think you've got 17 democratic women now, right? >> well, we do. we have -- we're going to have 20 women senators, which is incredible. the american public in this election, chris, sent us a binder full of women, and so we're excited to have this many women in the senate, and the women, as you know, are a cordial bunch across party lines. we have dinner every other month in the strom thur mon monday room which is somewhat ironic. >> no, he liked women. i understand he liked women. ja let's not go there, chris. but in any case i think what we know is that the american public wanted to see more problem solvers after this incredibly polarized election season. women tend to be problem solvers and i think that helped us as well as some of the messages that we were seeing from the other side. >> well, on that point -- >> this is a great opportunity f
